The MOI has issued an official statement in its official Facebook page about the snipers of MOI and the denial of Eissawy in the press conference of police reshuffle last. The MOI claims that the words of Eissawy were taken out of context and were twisted. If I understand this statement correctly the MOI does not deny having snipers but it insists that there was no officer in Cairo after January 28th !!!
According to the Statement the Public prosecution was investigating the snipers matter. We want to know through activists lawyers the progress of this case. For sure the public prosecutor will use the fact finding committee’s report in his case which proves that the snipers of MOI were involved in the murder of the protesters.
Now I dedicate to Eissawy and the MOI this video from Al Jazeera international. I believe it was shot on the bloody Wednesday of Camel’s battle.
Despite it is a confession but it is not a denial, I believe this change of tone came after the pressure of the media as well as in my point of view a pressure from the army. Again people began to suspect the army’s involvement in the snipers scandal after the constant denials of Eissawy and for sure the army knew this and needed to act quickly.
